I had the privilege of recently being in the South of France, where we saw the prehistoric art of the Chauvet Cave. You probably remember when this magnificent discovery was made in the 1990s of cave drawings created some 30,000 years ago.
Nothing prepared me for their power and beauty, their contemporary timelessness, and the sense that we were witnessing what was holiest for a people who were crying out: “I was here. I matter. Look at our world and behold the beauty and wonder of it all.”
